you guys, are you ready for this? as i mentioned earlier, i was able to attend the cream event last night with two fellow bloggers, happenstance and little rabbit print. if you're planning a wedding, get ready to be inspired (if you see something you like, make sure to go to the cream event blog for a list of all the participating vendors). however, even if you're not planning a wedding, there was plenty of inspiration for any type of celebration you might be planning. the talent at this one event was unbelievable. as the organizer's tagline states, "one hell of a showcase event featuring the raddest crop of people in weddings." enough said. without further ado, let me dazzle you. (caveat: please excuse my photos. the event took place indoors and at night, so the photos are a bit grainy. i tried my best.)
the event was held at the bookbindery and above is a photo of the entrance. (by the way, the event was only blocks down from the wedding we attended in january!) there were layers upon layers of threadbare asian throw rugs scattered around the venue. i was in heaven. above are a few amazing business cards that i picked up. you can't tell from my photos, but most were letterpressed on the heaviest card stock. think matting board or hardbound book cover thick!
also got the chance to chat a little with the ladies behind joie la la, taryn and shelby. their wedding photography business is blowing up! make sure to check our their beautiful work on the joie la la site.
there were flowers everywhere! there were flowers hanging from the rafters, flowers in vases wrapped in twine, flowers in wooden boxes, and flowers in antique vases and urns. it was a flower lovers paradise. all my favorite types were represented, as you can see above.
last, but certainly not least...
i wanted to get you more photos of the beautiful dresses that beholden presented (anthropolgie's wedding line), but the ladies were moving too fast. above is a little back shot of the final presentation.
can we just talk about how cute that ice cream cart is above? sweet lucie's is available for any type of party your hosting, sweet old fashioned cart included. cute idea for a kid's birthday party, right?
i took a few shots of all the amazing stationery that was present at the event, but the photos came out blurry. i'm so disappointed because stationery is my favorite part of any celebration. well, it's a tie with cake!
so, there you have it. hope this recap inspired you or, at the very least, gave you some eye candy. with the delivery of this post comes the end of a very busy week. whew! this week we had this great mini-view, we had insideology take us to the french alps, we talked skulls, we marveled at a merry mishap, and finally we went to the cream event. as always, thank you for joining all the fun! i say this all the time...i hope it never gets old...i mean it every time i say it, YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!
any plans for the weekend? we've got a special friend's birthday and maybe a museum visit! make it great everyone!
(i will skip "what i was loving this week" as i think i've accomplished it above...;)
